Another Sky have a sound that can scarcely be contained.
A vast, powerful, probing approach to making music, the group's ethos matches the groundbreaking creativity of Radiohead, say, against Sigur Ros' lust for beautiful sonics.
Set to play London's Electrowerkz next month, Another Sky dropped past Later... last night (October 23rd) and arguably stole the show.
A powerful, precise performance of new single 'Chillers', they were backed by a string section for the gorgeous rendition.
Najeeb Tarazi directs the visuals, and it picks up on the lyrical notion of dreaming your life away, of refusing to grapple with the problems in your path.
Vocalist Catrin Vincent explains: “We really loved Najeeb’s take on the song. He understood that it’s not just another takedown of Hollywood. Instead, he chose to follow the relatively untold story of the bike scene in L.A.”
“Our generation is unique; a generation lambasted by the media, labelled as ‘ungrateful millennials’ because we’re dissatisfied working jobs our grandparents would have been grateful for. But we’re a generation that has changed more rapidly than any other, one that takes risks and rejects tradition.”
“What better story for our generation than a young biker working a menial job to support doing what he really loves? We need to look at why minimum wage has remained so static while the price of living has risen dramatically. We need to notice and support the worker strikes against big corporations.”
Tune in now.
